Shazbucks!

I swear I've been saying this phrase for years, but I tried to google it and nothing comes up. My wife says I'm making it up. Has anyone else hear it? Where did it come from?

It came from inside your head.

There is "shazbot", which I think originally was from Mork of Mork&Mindy fame, and has been used around since...

If I owned Starbucks, that's what I would rename it to.

Maybe you spelled it wrong.

Crap. Maybe I made it up. I'll have to ask my brother. I think we used to say this as kids.

Maybe it's chazbucks, but that doesn't turn up many clues either. I've tried a lot of spellings.

Aw, Shazbucks!

I'm with Wildcat . . . I think you got that from "Shazbut" from Mork & Mindy.

Exactomondo guys... that has to be it!

I thought I got it from a cartoon or something, but Mork & Mindy is definitely right.

Thanks, talemyn and Wildcat!

You'd think these other losers members would have heard of it by now.
